There are thousands of these two wheelers buzzing around Thailand, and it's common for them to be overloaded with goods, going the wrong direction or pulling risky moves. Keep a lookout!

Driving etiquette
Tailgating and cutting other drivers off is common, and signalling is unlikely. Thai drivers also fancy nudging their way into dense traffic, so drive defensively.

Pedestrian crossings
Unlike in Western countries, marked pedestrian crossings do not mean cars are to yield for pedestrians. Rather, it’s the opposite, as stopping for walkers disrupts the flow of traffic.

Thailand travel tips

There are so many, if you try to see them all, you’ll burn yourself out! Visiting is usually free. You must remove your shoes and hats before entering, avoid getting in the way of locals worshipping, and dress modestly.

Rainy season
Rainy season occurs throughout most of Thailand from June to October. It rains almost everyday during these months and storms can be very intense. Flooding is also common and can cause issues driving.

From night bazaars to floating markets, there are plenty of places to shop, but remember to haggle! You can usually talk your price down by at least a third.

Return a ‘wai’
Wai is a greeting where you bow your head while keeping your hands in a praying gesture. It is polite to smile and return this gesture to anyone welcoming you this manner.
